Housing Market Studies for Intermediate Cities/ Larger Towns in the Western Cape, South Africa.
Developed in 2021, the draft Western Cape Inclusionary Housing Policy Framework provides a guide for municipalities to develop local policies which harness inclusionary housing as a mechanism to promote better located affordable housing in towns and cities, in partnership with the private sector.
As a first step to determining if inclusionary housing has the potential to be an effective policy tool in the local municipal context, it is necessary to have a clear understanding of the residential property market in the municipality.
Given that many local governments do not have the means to undertake this detailed analysis themselves, the Western Cape Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning (DEADP) in partnership with the Department of Human Settlements appointed CAHF to deliver housing market studies for identified urban areas of Paarl, Wellington and Mbekweni, Mossel Bay, Kwanonqaba and Hartenbos, George and Stellenbosch.
